Eddie Mcgarry dance band

Hi everyone. I'm Angelflower and just joined the site. I am looking for as much information as I can get on Eddie Mcgarry and his dance band. I have been reading some posts that have given me lots of info on various members of the band. If anybody has anything they can tell me I would really appreciate it. Thank you.

Re: Eddie Mcgarry dance band

Hi, these two posts are actually from this website, a few years ago. Just tap in Eddie McGarry in the search box.

eddie mcgarrys drummer for many years was olaf whittaker lived on lime road accrington a very smart and snappy dresser and then of course the lady vocalist lily towers the band itself broadcast many times on the radio and most of the band full time musicians


some one also wrote "Lily Towers (married name Lily Sanderson) was my aunt. She passed away yesterday. (2016) She had a chart success under the name of Mary May".
